AP disconnect alert

Recommended Posts

Would it be possible to add a command to the FO to silence the AP disconnect alert? I have been trying to find a key press that I can program into my joystick but no luck so far.

I don´t think it will be implemented as a command in FS2Crew, since the action in real world is to push the disconnect button twice.

First to disconnect the AP.

Second to silence the alarm.

 

You can set a keyboard key to do this, but I am afraid it is not possible to set up a controller key, but I might be wrong.

 

It is located in the MCDU, from the main page:

>PMDG Setup >Options >Key Command >Autoflight >Page 8/8 >Autopilot Disengage Switch.

 

When pushed twice, the AP will disengage, and the alarm will sound three times.

Once again, only works for a keyboard key.

Thanks for your reply. I did some more research and found that I can assign a key through pmdg options for AP disconnect and then link it to my joystick. You are correct, if I push the disconnect button twice, it silences the alarm. But it would be good, if you ask the FO to disconnect the AP, that he also pushes the button twice in order to silence the alarm.

 

Regards
